Chasing Ghosts: Author Visit with Nicola Pierce

Chasing Ghosts: Author Visit with Nicola Pierce

‘You will never be lonely as long as you have a book in your hand’ Nicola Pierce

Join Tallaght-born children’s author Nicola Pierce for a special library visit.

Using photographs and paintings, Nicole will present the real story behind her fifth children’s novel, Chasing Ghosts: An Arctic Adventure, introducing the polar explorers of the doomed 1845 expedition, making references to Shackleton and Scott.

The importance of keeping a diary will also be highlighted, regarding the historical voice, while similarities will be drawn between our COVID-19 lockdown experience and a ship on lockdown for the best part of a year in the Arctic.
